27 April 28th, 2015 Aussie Actor Alexander Bruzt Wins Role Of Finn On Days of our Lives!


The search is over!  Days of our Lives has found their Finn!  Revealed exclusively on Sunday, Alexander Bruzt bested finalists Andrew Steel and Tom Dalzell for the upcoming role on the long running NBC soap opera set to celebrate 50 years on the air this November.

Bruszt landed the role after flying to Los Angeles a week and half ago for a screen test, where he went head to head with two other finalists.  On-Air On-Soaps spoke to Bruzt and the finalists immediately following their screen test.

The thirty-two year old was one of more than 300 actors who entered Foxtel Arena’s online competition. Alexander will join the cast of DAYS as the  handsome and rugged Australian doctor who arrives in Salem to complete his residency under the supervision of Doctor Jonas, played by Shawn Christian.

Mr Bruszt will return to LA in May to start shooting his episodes! He will appear on-air in November.  Bruzt commented on his victory: “I am looking forward to this opportunity to work with such an incredibly talented cast and crew on such an internationally respected daytime drama.”

DAYS Co-Executive Producer Greg Meng said on the casting of Bruzt as Finn: “‘After seeing the amazing range of talented submissions we received from Australia, we’re thrilled to welcome Alexander Bruszt to our Days family. We can’t wait for fans to see what kind of trouble he’ll be stirring up in Salem.”

So what do you think about the choice of Alexander Bruzt for the role of Finn? Looking forward to seeing what his story will ultimately be on the soap? Comment below!

    Hey, Mark.
    Is that a double entendre? How very witty of you. Too funny.


  2. Jimh(leave it to beaver) says:

    Jordan and her family were failures…Serena is another flop as was Melanie’s return…i will reluctantly give this Finn a chance…he will most likely be a new love interest for Theressa, and Brady will show his jealous side!!! Of course Daniel has to be involved…i wouldve prefered Kayla and having a storyline with her falling in love with this much younger Finn and in an ironic twist Patch becomes his patient and saves Patch’s life!!!


    Jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    He looks like a young Patch…maybe Finn is son of Patch!!! John doesnt have to be the only one in with a long lost love child…lol


    Jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Wouldnt it be cool if Finn was Patch’s son and Kayla fell in love with that ‘Son Of A Patch!’…lol

    4ever DAYS replied

    jimh, I think he looks like Peter Reckel (Bo). Maybe Finn is Bo’s son from his Merchant Marine DAYS! Wait a second…Patch was in the Merchant Marines with Bo! Britta was the girlfriend they shared!! Britta Englund could be the mother of Finn and Bo or Steve is his father!!!

    Remember the three daggers storyline? Bo, Steve and Britta have the dagger tattoo. Maybe Finn will be sporting the same tattoo!!!!!

    CeeCee replied

    Well, jimh…. lately, Melanie is definitely worth her salt. Her presence proved to be imperative in aiding to prevent the cataclysmic events planned by a crazed Kristen.
    I want Theresa to reunite with Brady. She truly loves him and I also believe that deep down, he is still in love with her. But, no one ever finds happiness in soaps…’tis the nature of the beast.
    I didn’t mind Jordan so much….but, Serena? What was that all about? What a waste of talent!!
    I hope now, Eric will come down his high horse, realize he still loves Nicole…but, buuuut—-he can’t have her….what great satisfaction!!……what sweet irony!!

    I agree with you that the Finn character looks like Patch…Maybe your presumption can happen. Maybe they’ll show up together….or find each other as John and Paul did. Would that be overkill, on DOOL’s part?


    dmr replied

    jimh, I completely agree with you-Melanie’s return and the onslaught of giggles is like nails on a chalkboard to me. Serena is a dud. Jordan and her family-the backstory was boring and took a very long time to come out-with Jordan just leaving. Tired of the “Daniel-Hero” too and the same fights with Nicole-along with her “Apology Tour 2015.” Tired of Theresa’s antics-which will now change for the better since she knows about the baby; although, we have no reason as to why she was so hateful and vengeful since she came to town-seemed unwarranted to me.


    Jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Teressa wasnt really given a back story to explain her bad girl behavior…just another flaw from tptb!!!

  3. CeeCee says:

    He’s really pretty.


    Jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    So i guess you and some others will think of him as HUNKelberry Finn…lol


    CeeCee replied

    Yeah, Jimh, I hope HUNKelberry brings his friend Tom along. LOL.

  4. Jeremy says:

    I’m so pleased that Alexander Bruszt was selected!!! Smart move DAYS. He seemed very natural.


  5. Llanviewer717 says:

    Congratulations to Alexander. I look forward to his arrival in Salem.


  6. Patrick says:

    I hope… they let him keep his accent….

    would that not stir EVERYthing


    Patrick replied

    ie: same thing with Victor’ nephew : Alexandross

    with his “british” ??? accent and his high brow dress attire

    i’d go Theresa on him, as well… and/or isn’t it nice to at least see Nicole with some one else other than …. Daniel / Eric / Brady


    Mary SF replied

    I think Zander is supposed to be the new EJ — type not character– and I would love Nicole to be with another bad boy who accepts her for her for who she is instead of having to change for all these pretty good boys who don’t know how lucky she even noticed them– I think Theresa is Brady’s true soul mate, that is if she doesn’t die on him, since so many of his lady loves tend to bite the big one.

  7. code says:

    Great choice, hopefully they keep longer than 3 months.


  8. Patrick says:

    alright, spoiled Americana

    take heed…. TUNE IN!

    “I am looking forward to this opportunity to work with such an incredibly talented cast and crew on such an internationally respected daytime drama.”


    YES !

    soapbox, mountaintop, blow, requisite

    Salem , here we come


  9. Carolyn says:

    I liked him on your earlier interview with the three finalists and wish him all the best as he begins taping. I look forward to seeing him on air.


  10. Mo says:

    He’s cute. But based on the recent new characters they’ve introduced that have failed, I hope Finn will be better integrated and with good story. Maybe he and Nicole will hook up.


  11. Timmm says:

    Speaking of Aussies, why doesnt Y&R cast Ingo Rademacher as A: Cane’s brother he never knew, B: a son of Colin’s from a different women because we know Colin is sleazy, or C: a relative of the Atkinson’s? Get to steppin casting!


    Mo replied

    You’re on the wrong soap.


    Timmm replied

    No. They just hied an Aussie on Days. Speaking of Aussie’s Ingo WAS on GH and isnt wanted/needed so I suggest Y&R hire him.

  12. GB says:

    right. so they chose the hottest one – surprise! because that worked so well with gifted “actor” Robert Scott Wilson. for all i know he might be great actor, but if you look at the glory days of Days apart from a couple of the supercouples, looks were not the most important thing. it’s not hair models that will save Days from cancellation, but i’ll gladly eat my hat if he proves to be good and not just pretty


  13. Scott (ATWT Fan) says:

    He was not the one I wanted to see win, but congratulations to him in best regards.


  14. Blake says:

    Looking forward to seeing what this hottie can do. Hopefully he will be a great addition like Christopher that plays Paul.

    And if his character is studying under Dr. Daniel maybe he will replace him lol.
